The traditional ruler of Onigbongbo in Ikeja, Lagos, Oba Munirudin Yusuf, on Thursday urged the state government to embark on the development of infrastructure.
Yusuf told the News Agency of Nigeria (NAN) in Lagos that the Onigbongbo community was counting on government to erect a pedestrian bridge in the Jesu-Oyingbo and Mobil Filling Station area of Ikeja.
He said this was to allow students and pupils use the bridge instead of crossing the ever busy express way.
“With the pedestrian bridge, accident rates will be reduced.
“This is a reminder for the Lagos State Government that has made the promise to fix these aforementioned infrastructure since 2011 elections.
“The same promise was made in the 2015 elections and has not been fulfilled.
“I want to draw the attention of Gov. Akinwunmi Ambode to my community so that we will not be left out in his commendable work in Lagos State,’’ he said.
